In Black Milk, press notes state, "Lyovchik and Poppet, a small-time crook and his heavily pregnant, chain-smoking, lollipop-sucking wife, descend on a post-Communist wasteland, swindling villagers out of their savings. The young couple sit stranded in a remote train station and as the night persists, the strange, cruel, and whimsical world of their homeland teaches them a lesson."
The production will also feature set design by Ika Avaliani, lighting design by Yuki Nakase and costume design by Liene Dobraja.
